Yes, it does. Though only the DDX driver on HEAD is DRI-aware so
far. However, the driver is as insecure as it gets ATM. I'm working on
this right now. I expect to have something ready to commit that works on
Savage3D and Savage4-based cards before New Year. I'm revamping the
binary interfaces between DDX, DRM and the Mesa driver. So all three
components will have to be updated at the same time. Stay tuned ...
